New Goodies

It was the perfect combination. My girlfriend Julie's birthday and my new Stampin' Up toys came. Julie is a Stampin' Up consultant. You may visit her at Julie challenged us last week with some origami cards. Anyway, the paper was not new, but the flower punch and the bird and leaf punch were new. I also, splurged and got the new corner punch. I found two different ways to use the corner punch. The way I punched here leaving a triangular shape on each corner or you can punch so that the scallops are the only shapes on the corner. With three new punches I didn't know which way to turn so I used them ALL on this one card.


Next week is my brother-in-law's birthday so I have to make a non-feminine card which is a great challenge for me. I love all the fuss and muss with ribbons, beads, scallops, eyelets, and different shades of pinks and purples. I'll let you know how I do sometime in the next few weeks. Normally, I like to show the card after the receiver has actually received the card.

However, I was also asked if I would do a card stack workshop so I have some designs down but want to make a few more for that event coming up. That should help me stay in tune with my feminine side.

I then want to conduct a spring class featuring flowers and events for this spring like Mother's Day.

And, also, I volunteered to design Mother's Day Cards for my daughter's Daisy Troop. Of course, with 6 and 7 year old girls I am assuming they will do whatever it is they want to do. Which is perfectly fine. I am sure the moms would rather see their daughters creativity rather than mine.

Hoping you have a sunshiny day!
